Efficient Machining of Demanding Materials in the Micron Range

Mikron Tool premiered the results of its intensive development work at last year's IMTS.

Micro Milling Cutters with High-Performance Geometries

The new CrazyMill Cool Micro with integrated cooling is a new type of high-performance micro milling cutter for roughing and finishing difficult-to-machine materials. It is available in diameters from .008" to .039" (0.2 to 1.0 mm) with a milling depth of up to 5xd.

Due to material-specific cutting edge geometries, which were specially developed for the different machining behaviors of materials, the new micro milling cutter combines enhanced cutting ability with high stability. The result is a higher removal volume with high shape accuracy and a longer tool life.

Drilling Technology for Titanium

The high-performance material titanium is a machining challenge. In addition, not all titanium is the same. Pure titanium and alloyed titanium, for instance, both present different machining characteristics. That is why Mikron Tool has developed individually tailored drills for the various types of titanium: the CrazyDrill Titanium PTC for pure titanium and the CrazyDrill Titanium ATC for alloyed titanium, both of which offer high cutting values and process reliability.

CrazyService Products Novel Engineering Services

Mikron Tool expands its product portfolio and offers professional project management in the field of high-performance machining for demanding materials.

The offer includes: tool evaluation, optimization or redefinition of a process or critical sequence, tool life testing and even drafting of complete projects.

Machining companies can now benefit from Mikron Tool's capacity and expertise when outsourcing their pilot projects. Mikron Tool offers individual machining solutions for efficient component production with high added value and complexity.

Standard Market Requirements

For the U.S. market, Mikron Tool provides tools with diameters in inches, from 1/64" up to 1/4" depending on the product line. Especially in the high-tech industries that are very relevant for the U.S. market, such as aerospace, many dimensions are used in U.S. standard units (inches). The need for such dimensions is increasing and therefore Mikron Tool has introduced main dimensions in inches for a wide range of its drill and cutter families. The tool selection was based on the most used units in the industries concerned, with a special focus on tools for difficult-to-machine materials such as stainless steel, titanium and superalloys.
